In this sermon we examine [esvignore]Ephesians 2:11-22[/esvignore]. Our chief concern is the breaking down of hostile divisions between the Jew and Gentile, and the new people resulting from the peace that Jesus Christ has brought to us – that new people is the Church. Up to this point, we have been concerned with the work of Christ on the personal level; here, we will learn how He has worked on behalf of His Bride collectively. We will see how that should change our ways as members of the greater church, and hopefully, with God’s help, be stirred up to faithful affection.
Our public reading was [esvignore]1 Peter 2:1-9[/esvignore]
